." andrea, chime in here. despite a dramatic appearance from 89-year-old former senator bob dole, the senate failed to pass a u.n. disability treaty by just five votes. combat veterans like senators john mccain and john kerry delivered impassioned speeches, but dissenting voters said the treaty could pose a threat to national sovereignty. this is a stretch. more than 150 countries have signed the treaty designed to create unilateral rights for people with disabilities. it's actually based on america's ada act which bob dole helped pass more than 20 years ago. and you know, andrea, watching this american hero on the floor, a guy who is disabled, left part of himself, as he has said and others have said, on the battlefields of western europe, coming in and making a plea. i'm really surprised that this was killed by fringe concerns, fringe, fringe concerns. >> and it was, in fact, his fellow senators, several of the people who served with bob dole, who were the key votes here. and john kerry was leading it on the floor with john mccain. it was one of those bipartisan coalitions of veterans, wou
is richard kim, bob herbert, angela ride, and attorney raul rraez. what is going on here? >> what you are seeing is the republican party. the last time a congressional republican voted for tax increases, do you know this? 1990. so, you are dealing -- i kind of feel bad for john boehner, i have to say. he's dealing with a party that refused to raise taxes. meanwhile, 74% of americans want to increase taxes on those making $250,000 or more. two-thirds of the richest americans, the top 1%, making more than 300,000% say they want tax increases on themselves. they are trying to adhere while the country moved in a different direction. >> angela, i have to go to you. you work with the folks on the hill. having dealt with them, what do you think the game is here? is congress to the point i just made or at least the republicans in congress. is the perception they want to bring the government to a standstill? >> i think there are a couple things happening here. you did call it a game. it's a reality. first and foremost, you have a situation where there's not just the fiscal cliff ahead, there's
's the chief of staff to governor bob macdonald. to denise northrop came from state of oklahoma where she is chief of staff to governor mary phalen and roxanne white is joining us from the great state of colorado where she's chief of staff to governor john hicken looper. and so their full bios are on the pamphlets and nare all very accomplished professionals in their careers. i'm going to ask roxanne to start and we can come down this way. >> great. first, thank you for the report. i think it provides a good framework for all of us as states to continue to look at the challenges facing us. we have been engaged in pension reform in colorado. our pension fund is about 69% solvent. we did major reform in the last administration. and we are now in court trying to defend that reform. our pension costs by 2020 will go to 22%. and so to give you a sense of how far behind we were as a state, if we lose in court and the battle is whether or not we as a state have a right to ratchet down the colas for our state employees, then we could see a need to go to 25% of compensation by 2020. so it's fairly
-- >> bob dole. >> and john mccain today made a plea for bob dole who is in walter reed he wants to see this great moment, a worldwide standard, it would be good for business, but as you pointed out on the daily rundown today, the chamber of commerce supports this, selling wheelchairs -- >> around the world. >> and here, it's stalemate. it needs two-thirds, more than 60. this is a treaty. because it has u.n. attached to it -- >> going to say it's brand, it's about brand. >> at that moment with mccain and john kerry because of foreign relations issue and this is the way mccain sort of gigged john kerry and kerry teased him back. >> thank you very much, mr. secretary. >> thank you very much, mr. president. >> and there was a lot of joking after that. a lot of laughing. >> we should have showed. >> two of them have been close. people forget that the vietnam caucus, as strained as things have gotten in washington. >> they worked hard on that. >> what remains of it. >> with kerry and jack reed and the guys that are left, they're all -- they all look out for each other. >> where do you think
and from bob corker is that they want their jobs to matter. the want to bring these committees back to some sort of position of prominence. it is not clear that is going to succeed. the republican side of the committee, you will have many people in that leadership who are committed to passing a bill on issues like abortion and climate change in immigration, all sorts of things that are never going to see the light of day in terms of becoming a lot. the same thing in the senate. there is not a lot of bipartisan cooperation to advance middle interests. >> moving from capitol hill to the other side of pennsylvania avenue, we had a discussion about two nominations. secretary of state nominee potentially john kerry, and the debate over new defense secretary. what did you learn that was interesting. >> a thought was interesting that he came out so strongly against chuck hagel. the congressman engel is a very pro-israel congressman. i am surprised he did not come out even stronger. it was interesting to see him say that it was not something he would do if he was in a position to make that kind of
. >> bring it on. bring it on. >> he went on bob schieffer's program and accused our troops of killing innocent civilians and old people in the dark and night during the iraq war. >> what are we talking about here? >> i'm asking john kerry and whether or not he's qualified to be secretary of state. he said our troops, bob, are going in the dark at night and committing these atrocities. that was during the iraq war. very similar to what he said about our troops after vietnam when he accused them of cutting off limbs and tying electric wires to people's testicles. >> yeah. okay. i will say that -- >> should that be an issue? >> i think john kerry is imminently qualified to be secretary of state and a lot of republicans senators agree with me on that and a lot of republicans in the house agree as well. >> so he accuses of troops of atrocities and that shouldn't be an issue? >> the totality of john kerry's record as war hero and fearless advocate. >> war hero? >> listen. when it comes to defense, there's nobody who has a better record, who is more knowledgeable, let's talk about the state
, of course, the attack on 9/11 that killed chris stevens and three other americans. bob corker serves on the senate foreign relations committee and heard testimony during the closed session with the committee today. there will be open sessions tomorrow. they just briefed at the state department, in fact, that's still in progress. senator, one of the conclusions is that security was -- that there were security failures there, before, during, and after, but particularly before and during, that they were relying on the local militia, which was completely grossly inadequate, the reports said. what are your conclusions following the briefing that you received from the top leaders? >> well, i had seen films, andrea, last week of both the security cameras, but also later from drones. it was later in the evening, but the security personnel we had out front literally jumped on a truck and left as soon as they saw a crowd coming, so -- >> you're talking about the libyans, not the americans who were trying to stay. these were the local hires. >> these were the local hires, absolutely. we have so
in michigan and he meets up with bob dole. the two of them nowhere near politics. both of them so wounded and talked all the time in that hospital about what they would do in the future. both wanted to be doctors but both so harmed that being a doctor was, at that point, just completely out of the question. they had to come up with other careers and i talked with both of them about their relationship a while back and they describe that time in the hospital. take a listen. >> i used to watch him play bridge. he was the best bridge player in the hospital. we sat around and talked about what we were going to do with the rest of our life. i said, bob, what are you going to be doing? and one thing about bob dole, he had had his life mapped out. really mapped out. he says, well, when i get back, i'll be a county attorney. then i'll be in the legislature. the first opening of congress, that's where i'll go. i said, gee, that's a good idea. >> inouye actually beat dole and said, i'm here in the congress, where are you? dole joined him and later were both world war ii heroes. this is a generation
? i did. we did, bob. we did. got it. >>> good morning. it's 8:00 on the east coast. 5:00 a.m. on the west coast. time to wake up, everyone, as you take a live look at new york city. welcome back to "morning joe." back with us on set we have donny deutsch, mark mckinnon, and richard haass. >> let's start -- there's so much to talk about but, richard, let's start in egypt. absolutely fascinating. i think a lot of people across the world were so heartened by the democratic, we thought, perhaps uprising that was going on in egypt. certainly we all knew to overthrow a dictator of 30 years, even if he was an american ally, and now you have mohamed morsi behaving like, well, a dictator. and he's now got roughly 39, 40 political parties in egypt rising up against him. it is a mess. >> what you're seeing in places like egypt is the difference between democracy and majorityism. people like morsi win elections but winning elections is the easy part. the question is whether they can govern. the question is whether there's any tolerance for minorities, for multiple points of view. he di
that was never supposed to become public. bob woodward of "the washington pos post", you'll find in that name familiar new york doubt, in the spring of 2011 an analyst with fox news delivered a personal message from her boss, the conservative media mogul roger ales to general david patreaus. i'm joined by jim acosta from washington. what was the message that that reporter delivered in afghanistan? >> reporter: well, the message from that analyst at fox to patreaus was roger ailes a high-level executive at fox wanted the general to run for president and just listen to some of the audio. it features k.t. mcfarland a national security analyst at fox news and of course general david patreaus, this conversation was had back in 2011. just before he was named to run the cia. i'm being told we don't have that audio ready to go. let me read to you a little bit of what was said during that conversation as reported by "the washington post." one point, mcfarland says, quote, the other thing was just directly advised to me from roger ailes and patreaus says i'm not running. we do have a little bit of the
that period were so punishing the case against him should be entirely dismissed. joining us now bob massi and lis wiehl. let me start with you. manning doesn't like to be locked up and cried one day. i'll quote, when the guards seem angry and made me nervous. so lis, on that basis he should be let go? >> no, absolutely not. >> gregg: if that was a legal standard, all prison cells would be empty? >> now he is complaining to his lawyers action that was done to him after he committed the crime. he allegedly committed this huge crime. all these leaks. now he is saying, gee, feel sorry for me. maybe at sentencing but nothing do with the charges at all. >> gregg: here is what he said at his hearing sitting in his cell right after he was arrested. this is the principle parted. i remember thinking i'm going die. i'm stuck here in this cage and i don't know what is going to happen. i thought i was going to die in this cage. that is how i saw it an animal caged. he went on to testify, i was really bored. wouldn't most judges say, bradley put on big boy pants. you are accused of a serious crime. big
continuing the bush tax cuts for under $500,000 a year. something they agree on. >> because of what bob's saying is they're worried some voters are going to look at that -- >> unaware of reality that they would confuse this week with next week in terms of the same results. >> governor norquist agrees with you. but some republicans especially in the house who are unwilling to make the plan "b" type deal. >> but in the end where do you think it's going to end up? $500,000? $600,000? >> it's going to be in the middle. closer to obama's $400,000. >> i think that's about right. sounds about like $400,000. >> which leaves out less than 2% of the people. >> absolutely. >> people say that's an average income. most people make about $40,000 a year. that's average. $40,000 and that's with three or four kids too. >> there's only a couple places in the country somebody would look at $400,000 and think it's extremely wealthy. >> even in washington, d.c. if you make $400,000 for a couple you're rich. >> this weekend the president's been a tough negotiator. as you said with republicans. i think he's b
, inventory systems... ups? ups. not fantasy? who would have thought? i did. we did, bob. we did. got it. >>> one year ago this saturday, the war in iraq ended. it ended rather quietly. a trillion nine year war. a year ago saturday they played the national anthem and took down the flag and we left. this year the great city of chicago will hold a parade to say welcome home to the people who fought it. it starts at noon. volunteers spent today stuffing gift bags that will be handed out to veterans at the end of the parade. the organizers tell us that among the volunteers this weekend will be the folks that organized the st. louis parade. but chicago this weekend will be the biggest city to do it. check out the link to the parade's website on our blog. pulling off something like this in a big city is not easy. so seriously new york your excuses for not having a welcome home parade are getting fewer and fewer. >>> i think this may end up [ loud party sounds ] hi, i'm ensure clear... clear, huh? i'm not juice or fancy water. i've got nine grams of protein. that's three times more than me! [ f
, bob. we did. got it. >>> well, washington's division and dysfunction threatened our economic recovery, some american cities are working their way back after decades of tough times. recently, i traveled to youngstown, ohio, and caught a glimpse of hope deep in the rust belt. >> this is your father's first restaurant? >> the first one. >> what street was it, do you remember? >> wick avenue. >> wick avenue. >> my grandmother's lived in youngstown, ohio, for more than 95 years. >> yes, i've seen it in many different phases. my grandfather came here from greece. he opened a restaurant, the american dream. >> but he taught himself english. he taught himself to read the newspaper, and he became a very successful businessman. as he would say, only in america. youngstown was prosperous, and downtown youngstown was really prosperous. it was wonderful to go to downtown youngstown and be all dressed up in gloves and hat and going in and out of the shops and having lunch downtown. it was exciting. >> but that prosperity didn't last. youngstown ohio was the manufacturing backbone of this country bu
the commission but bob casey of pennsylvania rejected gun control legislation. is this commission more likely than an actual ban on assault weapons, is there a way to sort of sense what the likelihood is on these various things? >> yeah, there is a way -- you can look at the numbers of the incoming congress. you mentioned max baucus, a democrat, an avid sportsman, he gets an a-plus from the nra, the only democrat to do so. he's up for re-election in 2014. very conservative state like montana. i think that the commission is something a lot of these more conservative democrats will be willing to support in stead of outright gun control measures. and let's remember, washington and congress in particular, they love commissions. they love to form commissions. it is a way of kicking issues down the road or passing the buck, so their colleagues can make calls on these tough legislative issues instead of themselves. >> there is also a lot of fights going on the state level. michigan's governor just veto a bill that would have expanded where people could have carried weapons. on the other hand, ohio's
blumenthal and chris murphy. at 4:00, "face the nation." bob schieffer talks with governor molloy and paul vance. chuck schumer of new york and kay bailey, from texas. these are brought to you as a public service by the networks and c-span. the rearing begins at noon eastern. at 3:00, listened to them all on c-span radio. -- listen to them all on c-span radio. you can listen on your smart phone or online. caller: my inspiration was -- [video clip] >> my inspiration was the archives and documents about the cold war. talking about roosevelt, stalin, churchill, we know the main events from our point of view. i wanted to show it from a different angle, from the ground up, what did it feel like to be one of the people subjected to this system. how did people make choices in that system? how did they react? how did they behave? one of the things that has happened since 1989 is the region called eastern europe has become very differentiated. these countries will longer have anything in common with each other except for the common memory of communist occupation. >> more with anne applebaum, tonigh
take responsibility for it. i can remember bob michael former republican leader in the house saying i'm proud of voting for this. if you want a two bit congressman vote for somebody else. he kept getting reelected. host: john now on the democratic line. caller: good morning. thanks for having me on. my main thing is saying i think the problem is our g.d.p. we don't produce anything. we don't create any jobs. as far as china is concerned, we don't tariff, we don't put that high of a tariff on their imports but yet i don't know the exact numbers but i believe it's a lot higher that they tax our imports in their country. and the whole thing with jobs. he created the apple scommuret in california in his garage but yet when he got successful he moves all his company over to china, giving chinese people jobs. if steve jobs was born in china he wouldn't even have a garage therefore he wouldn't be able to create the apple computer. so i just think we just don't do enough for the people of this country. and the people who are in position to create jobs and do this do not reinvest in the countr
. >>> dramatic confrontation on capitol hill. bob dole appeared in the senate floor in a wheelchair to urge passage of an international treaty promoting rights for disabled people around the world. the republicans blocked it yesterday. one of the most vocal supporters is senator john kerry of massachuset massachusetts, the chairman of the foreign relations committee. senator, thanks very much for coming in. >> good to be here. >> you needed 67 votes to ratify this treaty. you got 61 votes. there were some republicans who went ahead and voted in favor, a lot of them didn't, and in part, this is at least what some of their staff told me, it's because the former senator rick santorum, the former republican presidential candidate raised this issue i is aing this international treaty would undermine his ability to deal with his daughter, for example, isabella, who's disabled. listen to what santorum said. >> i don't often bring isabella out for any types of public events. karen and i felt very strongly that as a mother and father of a disabled child, that we needed to speak for those in the disa
there's only one question that people want to know about "the five." . >> do you like bob beckel. >> how do you deal with-- >> how do you tolerate him. does ebl what he-- >> sometimes i can answer that. asked in kimberly and andrea can walk in those shoes and people ask is he crazy, a genius or funny, some people don't get him. like i really get him and start laughing before he finishes sentences. >> dave: well, don't overdeliver tonight at eight o'clock, if you want to follow the governor's advice. >> and big shoes to fill. >> juliet: thanks, dana. >> clayton: service women denied from fighting on the front line. is this an outdated measure and outright discrimination? we'll debate that next. >> juliet: so long dollar bill, hello coins? why lawmakers say it's time for more change. ♪ so, you actually reward people for staying with you? yep. the longer you stay with us, the more you save. and when you switch from another company to us, we even reward you for the time you spent there. genius. yeah, genius. you guys must have your own loyalty program, right? well, we have something. show
